Charlie the Butcher’s Kitchen is in a one-story building with a low, shingled roof on a busy corner in Williamsville, but it almost feels like the country.

How it Began
It all began on a Wednesday in June of 1988 when Tom Jolls and Charlie debuted the first of many WKBW Backyard Barbeques. Tom, Western New York’s premier and veteran weatherman, with his TV cameras and monitor gave the weather live from your backyard. Charlie, with his grill, Chorizo, Polish and Italian sausages, Chicken Spiedies, Beef on Weck, etc. managed to smoke up many WNY backyards.
The tradition continues with Charlie The Butcher’s Backyard Barbeque. Of course Tom retired and Charlie doesn’t do the weather, but our staff are sure to please with a full assortment of Buffalo’s favorites. Let us do the cooking for you in your backyard and Taste What Buffalo is all About!
